  Hrm, you're correct, poor example.  This would be if a seperate application 
actually connected to the server, providing capabilities.  Really, the way 
people are looking at using it to see what a client is capable of is using the 
<ns> tag, as WinJab currently does.  Example:

<iq type='result' id='browser_JCOM_7' to='tcharron at jabber.org/Work' 
from='tcharron at jabber.org/Work'>
<user xmlns='jabber:iq:browse' jid='tcharron at jabber.org' name='tcharron'>

  My example was basically a way to have a seperate resource defined as an 
application.  The above is probrably the best way to handle it, and declare 
your data as being a namespace, such as jabber:x:i3connectgames
